Lots, and lots and lots of reasons to dis this offering here. No new tech, just buy eBooks at $10 a pop, who wants hundreds of books on a device, what's so hard about destroying a book, OSS software already exists that does this, etc. etc.
Here's the thing for me: I want a research library I can take where ever I go. I am a heavy research library book user, and I buy a lot of used books, trying to get out of print texts. When I need a book, I need that exact book, and no substitute will do, because none exists. No, many of the books I want CANNOT be downloaded because someone else scanned it, or as an eBook. I cannot destroy library books, and if I own the book I'd rather have the paper copy too. Whether something is possible with similar tech and software is irrelevant. It needs to be fast and convenient. A well integrated system to this is worth a lot, a lot more than $234 (the final cost if you buy it now). I have worked with a number of Windows and Linux-based processing chains for scanning, page clean-up, compression, OCR, etc., and they are painful to use without exception, some are more painful than others, but none is anything like painless.
Will this really do the job I hope it will? I don't know, but I will find out.
